Upskilling

« Back to Glossary Index

Upskilling is the process of teaching employees additional skills. Upskilling helps employees move vertically in their career paths. This process is fundamental for many manufacturing organizations to cope with a shortage of skilled talents.

As opposed to reskilling, which is a process that trains employees to do new jobs, reskilling expands the skillset and moves the employees laterally.
